In his words:
"For the past six years I have just been floating, last year I told myself and my team, you know what I am going back to comedy I want to do five years and I am quitting. I am quitting in 5 years. I have got five years to do this and I am done. I will still be cracking jokes but it wouldn't be a professional thing. So if you see me doing any gig, it is maybe I am doing pro bono but i will not charge anybody to perform again. I have made enough, I have committed myself to the art enough to take a break or quit. I am now into movies, series, and concert production. I want to experience something new and I want to be remembered for something else other than comedy.”
Basketmouth is already in the music and movie industries.
